Yes, it’s already the end of the day on Monday.  Monday’s are so busy—tennis, piano, trumpet…and the list goes on!  I’m thrilled to be living here with a wonderful family and wonderful friends, young and old.

My Bible study is really wonderful right now—talking about how God uses, even allows, difficult times to grow us for His master plan.  What do you think about that?

Parker’s report card came in today…it’s really good, again.  He’s a hard worker…makes a mom proud.

Of course, Chip makes me proud, too.  He finally got a decent grade on a test in Mr. McTigue’s class.  Now, if he would slow down, he would score even better because he wouldn’t make careless mistakes.  Thursday night is the Jazz Cavies’ Cabaret.  I know it will be so great!

Siegel Elem.’s band performs tomorrow night (Tues), and I’ll be the percussion section will be grand!

I’m really praying for God to intervene in the lives of some of my younger friends.  If you can see where God has been working in your life, please share it with me.  It would be so encouraging to hear how God is answering prayers! 

I’m so proud of so many of you.  Your courage to express your faith is undaunted by kids who have chosen a different path.  Bravo!  Just like the lady in Atlanta who shared the Good News with that murderer.  Look how that turned out!  God is good!!

Have a great day–Susan

    Well, I was really really upset because I was gonna have to walk down to the culdasack for my mom to pick me up after school. Despite the fact that it was freezing I was also gonna have to walk by myself because most of my other friends’ parents actually pick them up at the school. After school I found out that 3 of my friends also walk that way. So, like… God helped me not be upset with the situation and made it easier on my mom, plus I get some bonding times with my girls! That’s just where I saw God today, and I thought I would share.
